Apparently, seventy-six percent of construction workers enjoy their work so much, that they don’t dread coming into work on a Monday morning.
For some of us, the thought of going into work on a Monday morning is something you would prefer not to do. However, according to recent research though, more than half of British workers don’t dread Monday mornings. Instead, they either like or absolutely love their jobs.
The survey revealed that in fact, one in three British people love their jobs so much, that they plan to stay with the company they are with for the “foreseeable future.” Not only that, but 13% plan to stay with the companies they are currently with for the rest of their lives!
In terms of how far employees would go to ensure their company would succeed, a further 36% stated that they would be happy to work longer hours. Another 31% would take on further work outside of their job role too. 18% would even be willing to travel further in order to ensure their company succeeded.
However, when it came down to money, very few respondents were willing to lose any pay. Specifically, only 3% would be willing to take a pay cut. And with 76% of construction workers happy in their job, it looks like the industry is doing something right.
And it looks like very few of you are feeling like this on a Sunday evening:
But why is that? Is it the pranks? The jokes? Or laughing at the hilarious fails and bodge jobs? Well, according to further research, the one thing that construction workers enjoy the most about their work, is the banter and laughs. Read the entire report here.
However, this term ‘banter’ is under question at the moment. One apprentice even took his own life after he was subject to bullying in the workplace which was branded as ‘banter’ by his work mates. Take a look at the full story here.
